TAKE U.S. 41 to ROCK CITY

TAKE U.S. 41 to ROCK CITY

It may be tough to read now that is red on black, but the words say Take U.S. 41 to Rock City. I guess this technically is not a barn but this was painted by the Rock City Barn Painter. This is an Antique Store on U.S. Highway 231 in Wilson County in the stretch from Lebanon, TN to Murfreesboro. The sign reccomends in Murfreesboro that you turn on US41 to get rock city. I think the Red used to be white but rusted and probably was easier to read decades ago when first painted. I am not sure the antique store was open, but there was lots of junk in the yard.

If you are interested in old highways, US 231 from Lebanon to Murfreesboro is quite a straight shot, but the old version of the highway winds back and forth a little bit while paralleling the modern highway. This store is at a spot where the old highway became the new highway.
